Honeywell and Cambridge Quantum inch further towards quantum computing

Honeywell and Cambridge Quantum have made three advances which suggest that quantum computing is closer than expected. First, researchers at Honeywell Quantum Solutions demonstrated repeated rounds of real-time quantum error correction (QEC). Secondly, the company achieved a quantum volume of 1,024 which was the highest measured on a quantum computer to date. Thirdly, Cambridge Quantum ...

MEMS becoming more human

The first signs are appearing that MEMS devices could emulate and sense their environment with human-like capabilities, using the five best-known senses in a “phy-gital” meta-world, forecasts Yole Developpement. The final step for MEMS would be to evolve from simple deterministic data-collection sensors to more empathic data-interpretation machines. Devices could discern and predict user moods, ...

Sandia researchers can see why lithium-metal batteries fail

For decades, scientists have tried to make reliable lithium-metal batteries which hold 50% more energy than lithium-ion batteries, but higher failure rates and safety problems like fires and explosions have crippled commercialisation efforts. Researchers have hypothesized why the devices fail, but direct evidence has been sparse. Sandia National Laboratories scientists Katie Harrison, left, and Katie ...
